Why would you make such a cynical comment?! He started out so well. Could you not find anything positive to reinforce? Such a blast of negativity into a cheerful thread…and he has such a hard time starting threads of that kind! :o
No, SIA, the catechism builds upon the earlier writings of the Church, one of which is that was are saved by grace, through faith, that we can do the works that God has ordained for us from the beginning of the world. The catechism affirms that we are saved by grace. It is the blood of Christ, shed upon the cross, that purchases salvation for us. However, Christ is not “alone”. He founded a church, and all who are baptized become members of HIs Body.
